GoDaddy has beaten out the competition to buy Host Europe Group for $1.8bn Share Billy Bambrough Billy Bambrough is City A.M.'s deputy news editor. Follow Billy GoDaddy sponsored Nascar racing in the US until April last year GoDaddy sponsored Nascar racing in the US until April last year (Source: Getty) Website domain name provider GoDaddy is buying rival Host Europe Group (HEG) €1.69bn (£1.42bn) including debt. The move is designed to help accelerate GoDaddy’s international expansion and expand its services beyond the initial set-up of websites. Host Europe is currently owned by private-equity firm Cinven which picked up the business in August 2013 and has a debt pile of about of €1.08bn. It's understood that a number of telecom and private equity firms had been interested in Host Europe before dropping out of the bidding. GoDaddy chief executive Blake Irving said: GoDaddy has successfully expanded its international business to 56 global markets over the past four years. By joining forces with HEG, we accelerate our expansion into Europe with the delivery of a broader range of cloud-based products, built on a single global technology platform, and supported by unparalleled customer care to help small businesses and web designers succeed online. In a statement GoDaddy said it is looking into options for Host Europe's PlusServer managed hosting business, including a possible sale. Read more: Amazon will plough ahead with UK data centres plan despite Brexit Bankers had valued Host Europe at around £1.6bn to £1.7bn, after it posted a 45 per cent increase in underlying profits to £95m last year. Earnings are forecast to rise to £140m next year. Host Europe manages some 7m internet domain names and has 1.7m customers across nine data centres and a large business in Germany. Chaired by former BBC director-general Lord Birt, Host Europe is currently owned by buyout firm Cinven, which bought it from equity rival Montagu for £438m three years ago. The sale was put on hold by the UK’s European Union referendum, after it first went under the hammer in the spring of 2016. Earlier this month it was reported that Deutsche Telekom – working with buyout firm Hellman & Friedman – had withdrawn from the bidding for Host Europe.

There has recently been a rapid rise in demand from small business owners for managed web services, driving up valuations for many website hosts. GoDaddy said the deal, subject to customary regulatory requirements, is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017.

Domain names can now be hosted in China. .Club, .VIP (MMX) and XYZ are celebrating today after being approved by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (“MIIT”). The approvals mark the first time Western registries have received MIIT's stamp of approval for domains to be hosted in China. Previously, .Club, .VIP and .XYZ domains could be registered in China but could not be activated or hosted there. Now, owners of these names can apply for the relevant local license (“bei-an”) in order to host these domain names in China. These three domains are among the three most popular Western TLDs in China. China accounts for over 90% of .VIP registrations, more than half of .Club and a third of .XYZ's registrations to date. The companies hope the approval will further improve their TLD's standing in China now that Chinese citizens can activate the domain names in China to reach Chinese consumers.

.vip MIIT approval Minds + Machines Group Limited (AIM:MMX), the publicly quoted owner and operator of Internet top-level domains, is delighted to announce that it has today received official approval from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology ("MIIT") of the People's Republic of China for MMX's dot VIP top-level domain. The announcement was made via the official website of the MIIT. Approval means that owners of dot VIP domain names within China can now apply for the relevant local license ("bei-an") to allow their dot VIP domain names to be hosted in the country. MMX's TLD dot VIP is one of only three generic new top-level domains ("new gTLDs") to have received this approval via this MIIT announcement. Toby Hall, CEO of MMX, commented: "MIIT approval is a major milestone for MMX and the continued successful development of our dot VIP domain. We share the China domain industry's opinion that regulatory approval will provide for another wave of top-level domain growth in the region. Influential Chinese registrars will now be able to market this select group of approved new gTLDs more actively to the important local Chinese SME end-market for usage. We are deeply honoured to be one of only three registries to be approved in this first round of approvals." Launched in May 2016, dot VIP has been the most successful new top-level domain ever launched to date based on registrations in its first month with Chinese domain investors being amongst the first major purchasers of dot VIP domain names. Today's announcement bodes well for both further domain name sales and renewal rates of those names acquired prior to MIIT approval going forward. Toby Hall added: "China is a key market for the Group, the country accounting for 42% of the 27 million new top-level domain addresses that have been registered to date. It therefore was a priority of 2016 to successfully access this region. Having a domain that is fully compliant, approved and extremely well accepted by the Chinese market, is therefore a key asset for the Group." Dr Mao Wei, a luminary of the Chinese domain industry and Board Chairman of ZDNS, MMX's technical partner in China, commented: "We congratulate dot VIP on its approval and believe it has the potential to become one of the most popular, significant top-level domains in China."

Very odd to settle at such a low price. Are we suspecting Market Makers doing some sort of hedging here?

More buying. Someone definitely decided that if the Chinese paid 13p it must be a steal at 11.5/12.5p. Hopefully very positive. Anyone know when the next information is coming.

Minds + Machines group Ltd 'very pleased' with growth in China Share 12:56 08 Nov 2016 Top level internet domain registry business Minds + Machines Group Ltd (LON:MMX) has passed a major milestone in its Chinese business. The group said it has now performed more than half a million registrations in the People’s Republic for its .vip domain, which is not bad going, as it only went on sale in May of this year. Chief executive Toby Hall tells Proactive: ''We've had a good 23% growth since the half-year point there so we're very pleased indeed''. Hall went on to say the milestone was achieved without making use of the “fremium”; sales models, adding ''for us there were many marketing strategies that can be used to launch a domain but for us maintaining the price is key for establishing the long term value. What's particularly reassuring is this significant level of registration has been done without any discount of our standard price''. cheers ft ft

Minds + Machines 2016 Outlook Upbeat After Developments In Key Markets Mon, 7th Nov 2016 09:29 LONDON (Alliance News) - Minds + Machines Group Ltd on Monday said its outlook for 2016 remains "upbeat" after a period of "significant internal heavy lifting". The top-level domain registry company said in China the number of registrations in .vip have passed the 500,000 mark, which it said was a "major milestone" for the domain it launched in May and which was achieved without the use of freemium sales models in its marketing. Minds + Machines said it plans to open an office in Xiamen, China, to support its ongoing development in the country. Meanwhile, in the US, the transfer of .boston has now completed the Internet Corporation For Assigned Names & Numbers registry process and is on track for a 2017 launch, the group said. Minds + Machines said it was also encouraged by the higher-than-expected renewal rates it was experiencing across its US-facing vertical top level domains as it continues to test market initiatives in various sector niches. Within Europe, Minds + Machines said it has implemented a long-term co-marketing campaign with its .uk top level domain, and noted that in the first month, the first UK registrar to introduce the initiative saw a three-fold increase in .london registrations. Minds + Machines did not say which company this was. Minds + Machines said it will closely monitor the implementation of this long-term initiative for its .uk top level domain. "Progress within the business is continuing at a significant pace and the outlook for 2016 remains upbeat. We are continuing to both rationalise our historic business and invest in our partners and portfolio to ensure we build on this momentum in 2017 across each of our key markets. After a period of significant internal heavy lifting, we are now beginning to see the advantages that our portfolio of top level domains can deliver," said Chief Executive Toby Hall. Shares in Minds + Machines were up 0.4% at 11.32 pence on Monday morning. By Hannah Boland; hannahboland@alliancenews.com; @Hannaheboland
